The Israelite Press — Yiddishe Vort, the oldest and the only bilingual (Yiddish-English) Jewish weekly in Western Canada reappeared this weekend after having suspended publication for five weeks.

A statement signed by its new publisher, H.M. Margolis, says that in the interim “we were encouraged by the determined interest shown in many quarters in the revival of this newspaper.” Editor of the Israelite Press will be Melvin Fenson. Noah Witman, who was publisher until the recent temporary cessation, remains as editor of the Yiddish section.
